The Quebec government will hold a public inquiry into an overpass collapse Saturday that killed five people and left six others in hospital, senior government ministers.

Also, a second overpass in Laval also built in 1970 and with similar traits as the de la Concorde overpass, will remained closed as a precautionary measure.

Transport minister Michel Després said that Transport Québec officials worked overnight reviewing the designs of all 4,500 Quebec overpasses and bridges. Of those, 20 were identified as needing a closer inspection.

The public inquiry into the collapse will be headed by former premier Pierre-Marc Johnson.

Five people are dead and six people remain in hospital following the de la Concorde Blvd. overpass collapse during the noon hour Saturday, the Sûreté du Québec said.

Nearly 15 hours after the eastbound lanes and a pedestrian walkway collapsed onto Highway 19 below, rescue workers were able to remove the two cars that were crushed underneath the rubble.

About 3 a.m., the two cars were located. They were both completely crushed, only rising as high as the knees of one firefighter at the scene, television footage showed. About 5 a.m., the cars were transported to a municipal garage.

“I can confirm there were three victims in a single vehicle. Two people were in the other car,” said Constable Isabelle Gendron, a provincial police spokesperson.

The first three people have been identified as Jean-Pierre Hamel, 40, of Laval. He was believed to be driving the car while his common-law wife, Sylvie Beaudet, 44, sat next to him.

In the back seat was Hamel’s brother, Gilles Hamel, 44. He is also from Laval.

All three were identified and declared dead by the Quebec Coroner’s office.

The other two victims have not yet been identified.

Rescue workers had to cut through what was left of the cars very slowly.

Provincial police say the two cars were travelling side by side, heading towards Montreal, when the overpass came crashing down on them.
